Team News: Liverpool
Nathaniel Phillips (Cheekbone Fracture), Harvey Elliott (Fracture-dislocation of the ankle) and Divock Origi (Muscular problems) aren’t available for Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp. Naby Keïta cannot play in this game through suspension.
In our view, The Reds could kick off with a 4-3-3 system with Alisson Becker, T. Alexander-Arnold, Joel Matip, Virgil van Dijk, Andrew Robertson, Jordan Henderson, Fabinho, Curtis Jones, A. Oxlade-Chamberlain, Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota.
Team News: Brentford
Brentford boss Thomas Frank has not got a full squad to pick from. David Raya (Knee Injury) and Josh Dasilva (Hip Injury) are not able to play. Frank Onyeka will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
From our viewpoint, The Bees might make use of a 3-5-2 system, giving starts to Alvaro Fernandez, K. Vassbakk Ajer, Pontus Jansson, Ethan Pinnock, Mads Roerslev, Vitaly Janelt, Christian Noergaard, Shandon Baptiste, Rico Henry, Bryan Mbeumo and Ivan Toney.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Liverpool look likely to get the win and a possible clean sheet when they come up against Brentford, who could well find it tough scoring.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a fairly comfortable 2-0 winning margin for Liverpool when the full-time whistle blows.
